It really irritates me when I am accused of seeing the world in black and white. Yes I do, so what? The Lord sees the world in black and white. The scriptures present a world view that is black or white. This is especially true of the Book of Mormon. And even the Latter-day prophets see the world in black or white. Here is one of my favorite quotations from President Hinckley. It is pretty black or white, wouldn’t you say? I guess I’m in pretty good company with my black and white view of right and wrong, true and false, doctrine and heresy, revelation from heaven and revelation from the devil. Check this out:
Our whole strength rests on the validity of that vision. It [The First Vision] either occurred or it did not occur. If it did not, then this work is a fraud. If it did, then it is the most important and wonderful work under the heavens. –Gordon B. Hinckley, October 2002
Put that in your pipe and smoke it, all you wishy-washy critics with vision so clouded that all you can see are shades of gray.
